New Broadband Availability Figures Show Significant Increases in Puerto Rico

By Wil Payton

Almost 77% of Puerto Rico residents can now access broadband at speeds of at least 50 Mbps download/1.5 Mbps upload, excluding mobile wireless services. This was one of the findings highlighted in recently released research compiled by Connect Puerto Rico. The data was announced last week in conjunction with Connect Puerto Rico’s participation in the PR Tech Summit 2014.

“Broadband capacity continues to improve in Puerto Rico,” said Chris Pedersen, director of program outreach for Connect Puerto Rico. “But work is still needed to close the gap in providing broadband services throughout the island to the remaining 10% of households without the most basic levels of broadband service.”

This is the ninth comprehensive broadband availability data release from Connect Puerto Rico through the State Broadband Initiative.
